In this way and that I have tried to save the old pail
Since the bamboo strip was weakening and about to break
Until at last the bottom fell out.
No more water in the pail!
No more moon in the water!
(Chiyono’s enlightenment poem, in Zen Flesh, Zen Bones (1957), p 31, translated by Paul Reps and Nyogen Zenzaki)
